Pajuk’s 7-game winning streak, last place to third place

KT, which was in last place two months ago, swept Doosan and moved up to third place.

The KT Wiz won the 10th game of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League against the Doosan Bears 4-3 on Thursday at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul.

KT won its seventh straight game to overtake Doosan and move into third place for the first time in 107 days since April 19 against Suwon SSG. The team has 48 wins, two draws and 43 losses on the season. The seven-game winning streak is the longest of the season, surpassing the previous six-game winning streak, and the first in 391 days since July 9, 2022, against Suwon Lotte. KT was in last place with a -14 win-loss margin just two months ago.

Choi Byeol-seong earned his fifth win of the season with a quality start of six innings, seven hits, four walks, one strikeout and two runs. He was followed by Joo Kwon, Son Dong-hyun, and Park Young-hyun, while setup man Park Young-hyun, who pitched in three consecutive games, recorded his second save of the season. The offense was highlighted by Hwang Jae-gyun, who had two hits and a walk, including the game-winning home run.

After the game, KT manager Lee Kang-cheol said, “The team did their job well with minimal runs despite their exclusivity in the lineup. Joo Kwon, Son Dong-hyun, and Park Young-hyun did a good job of protecting the lead. Park Young-hyun pitched three straight innings and did a great job.” He praised the pitching staff.

“They played important defense. Bae Joo-dae stopped the flow with his important home runs for the second day in a row. Kim Jun-tae also prevented runners from advancing in a crisis.” “With the tying run in scoring position, veterans Park Byung-ho and Hwang Jae-gyun came through with important hits and home runs to win the game. All the players had a hard time in the hot weather,” he said.

“I am grateful to the fans who came to the ballpark in the hot weather and supported us,” Lee concluded.

KT will look to extend their winning streak to eight games with Wes Benjamin on Friday. Doosan will call on Brandon Waddell. 파워볼게임
